PRLog - Nov. 4, 2011 - SILVER SPRING, Md. -- Ladybugs, pandas, penguins – even aliens – are bringing functional sophistication and affordability to children’s luggage, and just in time for holiday gift giving. TrendyKid’s Travel Buddies luggage provides parents with practical luggage solutions – and gives children trendy travel companions for overnights with friends and travels with family. New design Lola Lady Bug in bright red is already proving to be the number one bestseller for the holidays. http://www.TrendyKid.com
TrendyKid's Lady Bug Travel Buddies set
Lola, along with Pom the Panda, Percy Penguin and Archie Alien – inspired by a child’s drawing – make up TrendyKid’s line of sturdy two-piece matching luggage sets. The cases hold and organize all a child’s must-haves, from clothing to crayons, for travel across town and across the country and beyond. The backpack tucks easily beneath an airline seat, keeping snacks, storybooks and other entertainment nearby, and is light and manageable for children to carry once they reach their destination.
“Travel Buddies are a response to parents’ need for stylish and practical kids’ luggage with designs that appeal to kids,” said Rachel Stephens, sales and marketing manager of TrendyKid. “With my own six-year-old as head of design creation, we went straight to the end user.”
Stephens’ son, Archie, provided the design concept for Archie Alien, one of the latest Travel Buddies sets to join the ever-expanding collection.
Retailing for $89.99, Travel Buddies sets include a 17” wheelie suitcase and a matching 13” backpack. Each piece features a lightweight ABS hard shell design and organizational amenities for compact packing.
The 17” piece has a polyester lining with dividing pocket and zip compartment, internal garment straps and easy-roll wheels that are color coordinated with the case exterior. An adjustable, multi-length handle makes for easy maneuverability for kids and adults alike. The 13” backpack, which features a carry handle, adjustable back straps and an internal pocket, is large enough to accommodate all the essentials: crayons, snacks, small toys, electronic games, books and more.
TrendyKid Travel Buddies luggage sets are sold through Amazon.com, eBags.com, Colorado Bag and Baggage (in stores and via website) and in select luggage and leather stores nationwide. Additionally, in the Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C. area, the luggage is available at Luggage Plus; in the Midwest, it may be found at Dillard’s Department Stores.
